Documents incorporated by reference in the Water Regulations 2008

The Water Act 2007 (Section 256) allows the Water Regulations 2008 to reference and give effect to certain material without it being explicitly 'written into' the Regulations. Section 256 allows such material to be modified over time.

Certain documents published by the Bureau are referenced in Regulation 1.06 and their contents have effect as though they were included in the Regulations themselves.

Currently, there are three documents published by the Bureau incorporated by reference in the Regulations. These are:

Register of changes to online documents

The Persons and Classes of Persons and Commercially Sensitive Sites available on this website are the latest versions of those documents. Each document has a release date and a version number displayed on the cover.

The register of changes records all changes we have made to the documents and when they were made.

Procedures for managing online lists of named persons and sites

The procedures that we follow for managing updates to the online lists of named persons and the sites are available.

Format requirements

An Administrative Instrument contains the forms approved by the Director of Meteorology for the provision of water information.

Please note: the Administrative Instrument is not incorporated by reference in the regulations.
